Llanddeusant (1859)



The Rev. R. Phillips, of Llandovery, writes as follows:

"It is supposed that about three thousand persons have been added to the Calvinistic Methodist Churches in Carmarthenshire during the past year. Some of the greatest drunk­ards in some neighbourhoods give evidence of a change of heart by a change of life. The old people say that there is more of God in this revival than they ever saw in any similar movement. It is quite clear that a work has been done which none but God could accomplish. In some places the cause of religion had nearly died away, but now those places are quickened. The churches, which were small, have received a large accession of members, and new life runs through the whole.

"Although there is nothing very powerful at Llanddeusant or Mothvey, there have been considerable additions. The week of prayer, in compliance with the request of the missionaries in India, was a remarkable week at the former place. At a church meeting held after the service, the entire congregation remained, placing themselves for the time in the condition of inquirers.

From ‘The Welsh Revival’ by Thomas Phillips.
